What you'll do

Get up and close to ferries and stationary ships while taking in views of South Bank and the City of Melbourne skyline. This kayak tour starts in the city centre, on the Yarra River. After a gearing you up, adjusting your rudders and a safety talk you jump on the water. There are a lot of things to see like the former Customs House, turning basin, Historical ships, former waterfall and "Mission for Seamen". This is the centre of Melbourne so there is lots of vibrant activity. Historical commentary on the old docks area is provided along the way. There is a rest stop, half way through the tour, to stretch your legs and have a snack and drink. View the sun set on the water and then on the way back observe the spectacular pyrotechnic "fire ball" display at Crown Casino after dark. This tour is designed for people with little kayaking experience and who like to paddle in comfort without waves or sea spray. The tour is 2.5 hours duration with 2 hours of paddling time.

I have been kayaking since I was 8 years of age. I love all water sports including sea & white water, slalom, canoe polo, sailing & snorkeling. I have 45 years of kayaking experience and have paddled all around the world including New Zealand, Antarctica and Ireland. I wanted to work for myself and thought why not run a business that I love and understand. I have both sea kayaking and outdoor education qualifications. A degree in Arts (Recreation) and a Masters in Social Policy. I have been recognized 3 years in a row for a high achievement award from Trip Advisor (5 out of 5) and rated 4.9 on Google Reviews. I am a local to Melbourne for the last 54 yrs. I have been operating a kayaking business in Melbourne for the last 17 years. Our guide team is comprised of myself, Dane, Max, Jacqui, Tristan and Cam.
